Debian 8 Ispconfig 3.1 Apache 2.4

    I did a distribution upgrade from Debian 7 to Debian 8 with Ispconfig 3.1.
    Everything works fine, except Vhost of apache 2.4. What I did :

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    So I have my Debian 7 up to date.

    apt-get dist-upgrade
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    And after this I have my Debian 8 : no errors during this process.
    To avoid some errors inside logs, I update certbot (letsencrypt), add a new certificate to pure-ftpd and update ispconfig manually :

    cd /opt
    echo 1 > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/TLS
    openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 7300 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem -out /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem
    chmod 600 /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem
    service pure-ftpd-mysql restart
    cd /tmp
    wget http://www.ispconfig…3-stable.tar.gz
    tar xvfz ISPConfig-3-stable.tar.gz
    cd ispconfig3_install/install
    php -q update.php
    But I get an error from Apache2 Vhost here :

    Reconfigure Services? (yes,no,selected) [yes]:
    Configuring Pureftpd
    Configuring Apache
    Configuring vlogger
    Configuring Apps vhost

    The apache2 configtest failed. ... (warning).
    Output of config test was:

    Action 'configtest' failed.
    The Apache error log may have more information.

    Update finished.
    As you can see, Apache2 tells me to check log (Nothing is writted in logs) and the line talks about a duplicate value 'FastCgiExternalServer'.
    So I try this command line to find where is this value inside /etc/apache2 :

    grep -RIs "FastCgiExternalServer" /etc/apache2
    And the return :

    /etc/apache2/sites-available/  FastCgiExternalServer /var/www/clients/client2/web45/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi-* -idle-timeout 300 -socket /var/lib/php5-fpm/web45.sock -pass-header Authorization
    /etc/apache2/sites-available/  FastCgiExternalServer /var/www/clients/client2/web45/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi-* -idle-timeout 300 -socket /var/lib/php5-fpm/web45.sock -pass-header Authorization
    /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/  FastCgiExternalServer /var/www/clients/client2/web45/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi-* -idle-timeout 300 -socket /var/lib/php5-fpm/web45.sock -pass-header Authorization
    /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/  FastCgiExternalServer /var/www/clients/client2/web45/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi-* -idle-timeout 300 -socket /var/lib/php5-fpm/web45.sock -pass-header Authorization
    As you can see, I find only this occurence inside my vhosts files.
    And If I check, I have 2 FastCgiExternalServer used for this vhost (I think Ispconfig automatically add this in debian 7, one for the 80 port and another one for the 443 port). Do you know how to fix this issue ? Should I remove one ? Or keep both ?

    Thank you ;)

    Disable the website by removing its symlink in the sites-enabled folder, then start apache, login to ispconfig, chose tools > resync and let ispconfig rewrite the vhost files in apache 2.4 syntax.

    Hello Till,

    Thank you for your help, so here is my command lines :

    rm /etc/apache2/site-enabled/
    service apache2 restart
    But I have an another error from the Apps.vhost :

    [....] Restarting Apache httpd web server: apache2AH00548: NameVirtualHost has no effect and will be removed in the next release /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-ispconfig.conf:69

    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    AH00015: Unable to open logs
    Action 'start' failed.
    The Apache error log may have more information.
    Apache2 doesn't want to start, the 8181 is used by apps.vhost. Here is the code of this vhost generated by the ispconfig installation :

     Listen 8081
    # NameVirtualHost *:8081
    <VirtualHost _default_:8081>
      ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost

        SetHandler None

                                    Require all granted
    So I search and I write this command line :

     netstat -tap
    And this is the return :

    Apparently, the 8181 port is not used. The port used by ispconfig.conf is 8080, it's by default during the installation of ispconfig. So I don't know what is apps.vhost. So I search more on this forum and they ask to disable and remove selinux on debian 8 Jessie :

    sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove selinux-utils
    sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove selinux-utils
    But it was not installed. If I change the port 8181 to 4545, this is the same error.
    If I remove the apps.vhost from the site-enabled folder, apache2 start with the ispconfig.conf file who use 8080 port.
    But I can't access to the panel with my browser, I think apps.vhost is need by ispconfig.conf file.

    Do you have an idea ?

    Thank you ;)

    I'm still looking for a solution. Have some of you encountered this problem?

    Thank you.

    I just want to let you know that my solution was to use nginx instead Apache 2.4.

    See you ;)
